Towards the end of 2014, S.T. Dupont re-released a cult collection of natural lacquer lighters, created using the art of “Popoté”, a unique ancestral tech-nique that was used by craftsmen in its atelier back in 1953. The technique requires a deliberately, meticulous irregular hand movement, which produces the cloudy effect unique to S.T. Dupont. In 2017, S.T. Dupont Master Lacquer revived another and unique technique, more contemporary using in graphic art: Sun Burst effect. This effect is performed with graphic art and variation of colors given by the precise hand gesture. Whilst the process is the same for each piece, the result is different every time. The contrasting colours obtained, together with the craftsmanship by hand, give every product its own character. The Atelier collections are stamped with the original S.T. Dupont logo and the winged wheel hallmark. The years “1953” and “1872” are also inscribed on the products, in reference to when the lacquer and leather ateliers were first established.
Inspired by rare heritage skills dating back to S.T. Dupont’s origins, our artisans revive unique lacquering techniques to bring the Atelier 1953 range of hand-crafted objects to life, with natural lacquer applied by hand, layer by layer, to create a perfect finish. Flame-proof and highly resilient, each piece from the Atelier 1953 collection becomes an enduring precious object of beauty with its own unique character.
